If the video game industry seems all too often to give in to the sirens of the opportunist spin-off, the seventh art risks the opportunity, as illustrated by the late Andr Franquin, who decided to decline alone on stage a curious mammal believe in the album Spirou et les Hritiers.

Will there soon be a Franco-Belgian comic strip that has not been the subject of a video-fun variation by the French? After Astrix and Oblix, Tintin, The Smurfs and the unfortunate XIII, the Marsupilami license will very soon pass through the 2D platformer box. Houba houba?
He eats fruits and feasts
Microds has indeed unveiled Marsupilami: The Secret of the Sarcophagus, a platform game that will not directly stage the famous mammal from the Palombian jungle, but three more bankable offspring and in the era of time: Punch, Twister and Hope. Who said “Huey, Pippi and Loulou”? The first visuals from our image gallery set the tone, and testify to a certain influence of a certain Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze:
Punch, Twister and Hope are three Marsupilamis who lead a peaceful life in Palombia. As the Three Compresses open a cursed sarcophagus while playing with debris on a beach, they mistakenly release a mysterious ghost who casts a terrible curse on all animals. Fortunately for them, the Marsupilamis are immune. Our three heroes will have to go on an adventure and thus hunt the ghost in order to ward off fate.
The game is currently being developed by the Lyon residents of Ocellus, who have already been able to shine on Astrix & Oblix XXL Romastered, XXL 3 or Clash of Clans. We will therefore leave you to be the only potential judges. Microds didn’t wait to win two collector’s editions that are going well:
- The Tropical Edition, which includes: The game, 2 sheets of stickers and a door hanger
- Collector’s Edition, which includes: The game, 2 sheets of stickers, a door hanger and a 14 cm Marsupilami figure
Already announced on Mac, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series, Marsupilami: The Secret of the Sarcophagus will be released on November 16. So, ready to knock out enemies with your terrible tail?
